A 23-year-old Kurdish migrant has been charged with murdering and dismembering his 17-year-old girlfriend months after the young Swedish woman had gone missing.
Wilma Andersson’s body was chopped up into several pieces–some of which are yet to be recovered–after going missing on November 14, last year.
She was last seen in Wakesborg, Uddevalla, on Sweden’s western coast, according to Voice of Europe.
Wilma’s head was found in a suitcase at her former boyfriend’s apartment among her underwear.
The Kurdish migrant, who has not been named, used the fact that he kept his former girlfriend’s head as part of his defense, suggesting that he had murdered her, he would not have safeguarded Wilma’s head–as a testament of his love for the teenager.
On the day Wilma went missing, neighbors reportedly heard screams coming from the young man’s apartment. Motorists also alerted police to the young migrant’s strange behavior as he walked on a nearby highway.
Police questioned the young Kurdish man as he meandered on the highway, appearing to be in shock. The migrant passed off his behavior telling police that he had been in a fight and missed his train.
The Expressen reports that the man was spotted dining at a local McDonald’s the day of the murder as if nothing had happened.
The local outlet goes onto report that the migrant was a huge fan of President Donald Trump and accused his girlfriend of being part of a satanic force behind his detractors.
Local authorities took two weeks to pronounce Wilma dead, despite finding body parts, when her head was found, taped up and wrapped in foil, in a suitcase at the Kurdish man’s apartment.
Traces of blood were also found at the apartment. Forensic scientists also found the girl’s DNA on the man’s knives in his kitchen.
However, in spite of the damning evidence, the man claims the victim’s mother had gifted him the knives prior to her disappearance.
Detectives found a text message on the man’s phone from the summer before Wilma’s murder, telling the young Swede he wanted to chop her up into pieces.
The migrant’s defense attorney maintains that the Kurdish migrant is being framed for Wilma’s murder, suggesting that the suitcase containing her head was planted in his apartment.
